MADRAS, OR -- The FBI, Federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Central Oregon Drug Enforcement (CODE) team served a series of search warrants, early Wednesday morning, making about a dozen arrests.
FBI Spokeswoman Beth Anne Steele tells KBND News due to the nature of the events and because charging documents and warrants are sealed, she’s unable to release many details. However, she confirms nine people were arrested on federal criminal charges; three others were taken into custody on state and local charges. Most of the arrests were made at properties in Madras, Redmond and surrounding areas.
The investigation is ongoing and Steele anticipates those arrested in the operation will appear in federal court Thursday in Eugene.
